Rare Titanic Film

by Unknown



I found this in one of my file boxes. I either recovered it from one of my encrypted drives or someone sent it to me. The film preservations society said it was very, very rare. Here is a link to another rare Titanic Film. It is one of the passengers on board the ship.

Subject: Not Titanic.
This footage is actually of her sister ship the R.M.S. Olympic which Captain Smith also commanded before the Titanic. The reason for some of the film scratches was so the news people at the time could hide the fact it was not Titanic while trying to sell the footage. The tugs for instance would be identifiable as New York tugs, which Titanic of course never reached. That said both ships were almost completely identical and this news footage is a fantastic artefact of the time.

Thank You So Much for Sharing This!!! Downloaded both the H.264 (mp4) and the Cinepack (avi). The Cinepack has a higher Full Screen Resolution of 608 x 464, compared to the H.264 which is 640 x 480. Both files are of great quality, accompanied by a fitting piano soundtrack throughout and story-boards as you'd see in silent movies. Some very minor damage in some frames, like a white scuff mark, or fade mark from an old projector. This damage is barely noticeable though.
Must be rare as after watching dozens of Titanic documentaries old & new, especially after the 100 year anniversary. Not once did I see this archival footage used, if it did appear it was a brief 1 second spip-it. This film shows the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd class deck's, luggage being loaded into the open hatch, also featured are many other items aboard Titanic.
Carpathia seen after? the rescue?. Hard to guess as all people seen filmed are smiling from ear to ear. :-D
10/10 MUST SEE FOR ANY FAN OR HISTORY BUFF !!!!
